My name is also Neal.

I'm from Canada and I currently live just outside of Toronto.

The other Neal (Dincrest) on this board is the only other person I've ever seen who's spelled it that way.

I teach ESL English overseas and I've worked in both Korea and Japan. I'm going to be moving to Taiwan in February where I'll be working until the fall. If all goes according to plan, I'll be coming back to school for my education degree either in Ottawa or Montreal.

The one sport I really enjoy (if you can call it a sport) is scuba diving.
Love it. And I've been getting better at doing underwater photography, which is fucking impossible to do when you start. I spent two months in Thailand last year just mucking about with scuba courses and drinking girlie drinks on the beach and loved both.

No other real unusual hobbies - reading - I like horror and scifi.
Music - big death metal fan but also "classic" rock fan and drum & bass fan.
I was a fairly big sketcher when I was younger, and I enjoyed it, but I've let my skills lapse.

Mostly I enjoy travelling to new places because I get bored easily, which is partly why I'm going to Taiwan this time.

One sister and one nephew, who is already getting good at video games at 4 years old.
5163  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is Enchanted Arms worth picking up for $25? on: January 25, 2008, 09:17:10 PM
Well, I'm going to hold off.
I'm leaving soon and it doesn't seem to be something that's a rush buy.
I'll pick it up when I come back in six months. Should be cheaper by then anyway,
That and I forgot I have to get some travel insurance, so I can't really afford new games right now anyway.
Thanks for the suggestions though.

What the hell, Wal-mart ads?

I hear you can actually switch the dub to Japanese voices and use subs, correct?

Or Shadow Hearts.

I get what you're saying. The question is, is it going to sell enough units to make it worth using a new engine, or is it worth sticking with an already installed user base in the PS2?

If there were an icon for laughing, I'd use it, because it doesn't surprise me at all.

I won't be picking it up. The open world style is okay....but the announcer is a  tit and I refuse to buy a game with Wal-Mart ads.

I'd be largely doubtful of such a notion. There's few other RPG series' with the cult following Suikoden has, the only ones I can think of being Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, and potentially Sakura Taisen or Shin Megami Tensei. It may not be a system seller overall, but it can swing a few buyers here and there.

The key word being cult. Not a big seller. DQ and FF are definitely MASS market titles with broad appeal. Nothing wrong with that, I like them too, but they're certainly not cult titles like you're describing. Those games are system sellers.

Shin Megami Tensei is a good example of a cult title though, as I would say maybe Disgaea might be another one. A Suikoden title will be a system seller for me, whichever it's on, if I don't have it. I don't think Suikoden fans are a majority of gamers though.

Enchanted Arms seemed to get fairly lukewarm reviews and (from what I remember) the same reaction on the board.

I saw a copy at EB Games tonight while I was browsing for $24.99.
They also gave me a discount card when I had bought a bunch of used games along with a gift card for my brother in law, so with the used discount,  it'd end up being less than $25 total.

I'm going back overseas for six months to teach and then likely coming back in the fall for school. I'm not taking my PS3 with me, because it would be a pain in the ass. Is it worth picking up EA now, or is it likely going to be the kind of game that I always seem to find kicking around used, thus no rush to purchase it?

My take on the FF themes:
FF12 - Suikoden

I wasn't trying to start a flamewar with "Wii is suxxors!".

Leyviur summed exactly what I was thinking when I didn't express it very well - thanks.

There's also the fact that third party games don't seem to be doing well on the Wii - but that's traditionally what happens on Nintendo systems. (Zack and Wiki here and No More Heroes in Japan)

I'd rather see it on PS2 than Wii for the simple fact that S6 on the Wii could be the death knell for the series.

I thought the bug actually stopped the companions from helping you during battles?

Lard, you're getting about as obnoxious as PKProductions in your anti-Wii rants... just to give you a perspective. Maybe not as assaholic, but obnoixous.


Granted, that was a discussion about bringing it to the DS, rather than the Wii, but I feel the same about either. Consider it dropped.

Final Fantasy XIII demo planned
Wednesday 23-Jan-2008 8:29 AM ...to give you a taster of the new battle system
Square Enix promises that "2008 will be the year" for new info (and maybe the release?) of the latest in its epic RPG series, Final Fantasy XIII, as it reveals plans to release a demo, according to snippets of info from Japanese Famitsu and Dengeki magazines.

Not even a rough date was given for the demo, only that it main objective will be to give fans a hands-on with the new battle system.

The only hint of the full game's release was the quote: "I wonder when we'll be able to sleep...". Eh? We plan to have a kip tonight - is that when it's coming out?

Because we know you FF fans are keen on the smallest of details, here's a few more tid-bits plucked from the translations of the Japanese mags, courtesy of FF-XIII.net. -

-Nomura: "2008 will be the year. There will be tons of news bits, info on characters and summons, and an unexpected connection between the keywords Cocoon and Farushi.
- We're aiming for a demo to give players a hands on on the battle system.
- FF13's theme: determination.
- Farushi: Their existence surpasses humans.
- Rushi: Those chosen by Farushi to carry out a mission. The pigtail girl is a Rushi. Farushi is not the Crystal.
- Mr. 33cm is also a Rushi.
- This time summons are in digital form.
- A new monster that looks like a cross between a turtle and elephant.
- The red thing on Carbuncle's head is a ruby.
- Hint on release date: "I wonder when we'll be able to sleep..."
